July 2010: NATURE “Oceans in Glass”

A great white sharkNATURE: Oceans in Glass
Behind the Scenes of the Monterey Bay Aquarium

7-8 p.m., Sunday, July 25th

Thanks to its realistic presentations, the Monterey Bay Aquarium is recognized as one of the most significant and spectacular aquariums in the world. Instead of exhibiting collections of animals, the aquarium presents entire habitats, virtual slices of ocean that include 30,000 animals and plants. But how does an aquarium work? What’s the science behind the magic? Each of the animals here has a story to tell, but of all the animals to be seen here, there is one animal in particular whose presence is drawing world-wide attention — a great white shark.
